Mark Phillips, a partner in Aronson’s Diversified Commercial Services Group, moderated a panel for the Northern Virginia Technology Council’s Small Business and Entrepreneur Committee on Thursday 3/7.
While the region’s unemployment rate has remained around 3% (considered nearly full employment by economists), companies struggle to hire talent and are concerned about how Amazon moving into the region will further affect workforce issues. This panel discussed how companies, both emerging and established, can win the talent war by recruiting, attracting and retaining their best employees and how they determine and offer the benefits that employees want. In addition, the author of the book, “Second Wave Millenials” added additional and specific insights into how generational differences influence programs that attract and retain these employees.
